Devils defenseman Brendan Smith suspended 2 games for slashing

NEW YORK (AP) - New Jersey Devils defenseman Brendan Smith was suspended for two games without pay by the NHL on Friday for slashing Philadelphia forward Travis Konecny.

After Konecny cross-checked Smith in the Devils' 4-3 overtime victory Thursday night, Smith retaliated with a hard swing to Konecny's left side.

Smith was called for slashing penalty. The suspension will cost him $11,458.

The NHL fined Konecny $5,000 for cross-checking.
